    Is it new or used ? Has it been jailbroken before ? What is your first 5 of you serial number, ( the digits starts from the left, not the ending numbers )?

    You can use USBVIEW and Fw umbrella to find out if you have shsh on file with Cydia. If you do , then you can downgrade and jailbreak before proceeding to iOS 4.0 ( old bootrom only )

    You have the old bootrom

    There is no harm trying to downgrade, which one do you want to do? I suggest you try 3.1.2 first if not 3.1.3 ipsw.
    Point your hosts file to Cydia. Reboot your pc, Put your iphone into DFU and shift + restore to 3.1.2, if it restore, you will arrive at error 1015, if it says ineligible for the required build. Then try 3.1.3 if 3.1.2 can't.

    You can download your 3.1.2 ipsw from here
    iClarified - iPhone - Where To Download iPhone Firmware Files From
    and note down where you place your file , if it is in the form .zip, just rename it to .ipsw
    You point your hosts file is by editing your hosts file on your computer.
    Cwindows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    Open the hosts file using notepad and add this line to the very bottom
    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com > save it and reboot your pc
    Now do the Shift key + restore ( Itunes)
    and let it restore.
